Twin Otter Fleet Intelligence

 

This offer was made available to all subscribers yesterday. I am repeating it today for the benefit of those people who only read the web version of the site.

INTEL-1.jpg
 

Finding operational fleet data for a Boeing 737NG, or an Airbus A320 is easy. A Twin Otter, not so much. 

 

My straightforward, Excel based data covers the entire world Twin Otter fleet. You can easily manipulate it your own requirements using the built-in filters. Need to know how many Twin Otters in Kenya, or Kiribati? Who operates skydiving Twin Otters in the U.S.A? Which aircraft have been involved in a major, but repairable accident? All available in the file, with a couple of clicks.

Owner & Operators are, of course, included. Not only the actual owner, but the operator/lessee as well, and with mailing addresses for both.


Data Points include:

Manufacturer's Serial Number (MSN)

Series/Model

Operational Status (In use, Stored but airworthy, Stored but not airworthy, under rebuild)

Registered Owner and Address

Registered Operator and Address

Engine Type installed

Propeller Type installed

Landing Gear Type installed (Wheels, Wipline Floats, CAP Floats)

Main Cabin Door installed (airstair, utility, roll-up)

Operator Classification (military, skydive, air carrier etc.)

Country of Registration

Geographic Region

Aircraft has previously been registered in what jurisdictions

Is aircraft known to be for sale or lease

Major Accident Advisory & date of accident

Additional information if applicable

REG’N: PK-BRQ

OWNER: PT Aviastar Mandiri, Jakarta

UPDATE: As can be seen in the photo below, PK-BRQ has received the tail livery, and titles of Merpati Nusantara, which was the dominant Twin Otter operator in Indonesia from 1962 to 2014. The repaint is meant as a commemorative salute to Merpati’s influence in unifying remote areas of the archipelago.

To clarify - of course they didn’t operate the Twin Otter until 1967, but the company was formed in 1962.

REG’N: DU-SD5

OWNER: Skydive Dubai, Dubai

UPDATE: In a photo posted earlier today (see below) it appears the aircraft has been at Altenrhein/Saint Gallen for attention with Zimex Aviation. What you can see however, is that the aircraft has now been repainted with the standard civilian registration sequence “A6” rather than the specialized “DU” one it has carried previously. I’m going to guess that this was to facilitate the transit to Switzerland for maintenance.
